ELR103 Why xAPI? or Why Should I Care About xAPI?
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Wednesday, October 25
Learning ecosystems are where people and resources are organized to assist learners along their continuum of development and on into the world of performance.
This session will explore the business value behind learning ecosystems. You will examine how the Experience API enables new technologies for a next-generation learning and performance architecture that you can build and evolve to unlock business value and competitive advantages for your organization. You will explore the technology shifts, business drivers, use cases, and examples of business outcomes of learning ecosystem solutions.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why learning ecosystems are a strategic advantage
- How the Experience API (xAPI) is an enabler
- About key business drivers for a learning ecosystem
- About key use cases for learning ecosystems and value
- About the business impact of use cases in multiple domains
- About the keys to defining, building, and validating a pilot
